Preview of the groundbreaking exhibition opening at the Legion of Honor on June 24. The importance of the milliner, usually a woman, in the fashion capital of the world, Paris, from 1874 to 1914. We study the social and economic ambience surrounding this phenomenon while being captivated by the colors, materials and innovation of these high fashion arbiters and the artists who celebrated them: Degas, Renoir, Manet, Cassatt and Toulouse-Lautrec.

Kerrin Meis taught art history at SFSU for ten years, and she currently teaches for the OLLI programs at Dominican University and UC Berkeley. She leads study tours in Europe. Her Book Passage classes have been big favorites for years.
